Marriot loses customer data

The hotel chain Marriott admitted on Tuesday that backup computer tapes containing data on approximately 206,000 customers were missing from a company office in Florida. The data, which relates to customers of its timeshare division, Marriott Vacation Club International (MVCI), included personal information such as the credit card details, social security numbers and, in a few cases, the bank details of customers.

The company said it has contacted the affected customers and is offering to enroll them free-of-charge in a credit monitoring service, so that customers can discover if there is any irregular activity on their account.
